We believe in regular dental exams at Gateway Dental Care in Pleasanton, in order to ensure optimal oral health. During your comprehensive check up, we will review and discuss your medical history and take your blood pressure. We then review any specific concerns you may have regarding your teeth and general oral health, including any cosmetic concerns. All exams include x-rays of your teeth.
Complete Dental Examination
Dr. Kitagawa will examine the head and neck region including the TMJ (jaw joint). This screening exam is done to help identify any possible abnormalities. Then an oral cancer screening is completed. If there are any suspicious lesions or growths, it will be biopsied with a painless brush technique. Finally, the teeth and gums are thoroughly examined by looking in the mouth, looking at x-rays and measuring the gums. All the findings are then thoroughly discussed with you.
